Our impact

Our partnerships have the ultimate impact – helping to fund the lifesaving missions of the UK’s air ambulance charities

Missions just like the one to Sacha who was on a school trip to Richmond Park when a falling tree branch, weighing over 300kg, fell from a tree crushing him. Sacha suffered severe head injuries and broke his leg, arms, pelvis, back and five of his ribs

With thanks to London’s Air Ambulance, Sacha and his parents for sharing their story.

Our partners

Unipart Logistics

Air Ambulances UK has become the very proud Unipart Logistics Chosen Charity Partner for 2019 following an air ambulance charity lifesaving mission to a Unipart employee involved in a serious cycling accident earlier this year.

The employee’s life was saved by Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, one of the 21 air ambulance charities we support across the UK.

Employees at Unipart are taking part in a variety of different activities and a team completed the Thames 100 Challenge between the source of the River Thames in Gloucestershire to the Thames Barrier in London in November 2019, raising nearly £30,000.

Allianz

Our national partnership with Allianz has been a great example of how a relationship between a regional office and local charity can grow into a UK-wide relationship. Originating between the Allianz Bristol office and Great Western Air Ambulance Charity, the nationwide partnership linked all Allianz offices to the nearest air ambulance charity, with all enjoying a wide range of fundraising activities from aerial-themed challenges to office dress down days and quiz nights through to payroll giving and has beaten its £1,000,000 fundraising target.

This is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding charity partnerships we’ve ever had. To learn about the amazing work of the air ambulances and the lives of those they’ve saved really resonated with our colleagues. Everyone has been incredibly motivated to get involved, leading to some of the best events we’ve ever undertaken and we’ve benefited so much from the opportunity to meet clinicians and leaders in the industry. It’s been exactly the right match for us and has really helped cement our brand values in the minds of our customers.”
